Extra signs relevant to this topic (with detailed descriptions) have been added to support the communication needs for those who prefer to be able to refer to a mobile applications for the signs. It also contains a background introduction with information designed to encourage families and those working with children who are deaf or who have additional needs, to get involved.
Many more children and young people with special educational and additional speech and language needs also use BSL signs to support their communication and this application is designed to include all who sign.
This is a very simple application that will convert speech into readable text.
For a non-hearing or hard of hearing person, the application will allow faster communication with deaf persons. For deaf users, the software can assist in faster communication and may also be used as a useful tool when practicing your speech.
I would like to thank my friend Mitch Bergsma for the inspiration to write this useful tool.

Progresivamente iremos incorporando más situaciones, entornos y frases, así como otras herramientas, que faciliten el manejo de la aplicación y tu comunicación.
The application currently includes 5 sign language alphabets. These are the American Sign Language (ASL), British Sign Language (BSL), French Sign Language (LSF), Greek Sign Language (GSL) and South African Sign Language (SASL).
Despite the fact that there are various mobile service packages for Deaf people, these can still prove to be costly. SSMS main aim is to provide are more cost effective method of communication. SSMS makes use of graphical messages (hand shapes, signs) that are charged at normal SMS rates instead of MMS rates. The rates for sending an SSMS depend on the standard SMS rates of your cellular provider.
The application also aims to bridge the gap between Deaf and Hearing cultures. By allowing Deaf and Hard-of Hearing users to send and receive messages in their mother tongue, communicating can be more effective and pleasant. The translation feature allows hearing users to convert sign language messages into plain text.
• On-screen sign language alphabet keyboard.
• Receive and send messages in plain text and sign language.
• Translate sign language messages into plain text messages and vice versa.
• Message in Motion (MiM) to view sign language messages in motion. The speed of the motion can be set to improve viewing experience.
• Two different background themes. Based on research, the high-contrast black and yellow background theme should be more appealing to Deaf users. The second theme is a low-contrast grey background theme.
• Learning mode to view both sign language and plain text simultaneously in a message.
• Learn a sign language alphabet
• Set the size of the sign language and plain text characters

A handy application for deaf people, allowing a deaf person to write a note for a hearing person. This note will be displayed in large type and will be clearly visible on the device screen. This application allows a deaf person to talk with a hearing person, passing the phone to each other.
The application has a very useful feature for translating speech into text, which comes in handy in two cases:
1. When a deaf person and a hearing person pass each other the phone during a conversation, a hearing person presses the “Listen” button or the “Listen and Note” button. When he or she speaks, the app translates the speech into text, displaying the message on the device screen.
2. A deaf person can direct the phone or a connected external microphone toward a hearing person, press the “Listen” button and listen to what the hearing person says to the deaf person.
Also, a deaf person can pronounce the message using a synthesized speech feature (Speak and Note button), if a deaf person does not speak.
The use of a single device is not too convenient for the full conversation between a deaf and a hearing persons (as you need to be close to each other and pass the phone), that’s why we recommend to use two devices with «Deaf-Hearing Chat. Device-H» and «Deaf-Hearing Chat.Device-D» applications installed.
This is a trial version of "Note, Speak, Listen for Deaf". You can use up to 10 notes.
This is for those awkward moments when someone can't hear you or when it's not convenient to talk. Perfect for parties, classes, conferences, or in the car (passengers only!). Great for Airport pickups as well if you are a Taxi Driver. As another example, how about for prompting speakers when they have 10 mins left to talk only. Also a very usful aid to help communication with the deaf and hard of hearing. The scrolling text is easily readable from a few meters away if using a large screen phone.
Keep a shortcut to the Blurb application on your Android home screen as you will need quick and easy access to it for those awkward moments.
New features include:
* Now you can pass text from any other Apps/Widgets on your phone which have the "Share" function directly into Blurb so that it displays in big red text! Quickly show others a Tweet or a Text message for example by sharing it to Blurb.
* Share Blurb text to other Apps/Widgets by selecting "Share" from Blurb's options menu. Now you can share what you have displayed in Blurb to a SMS Message, Email, WhatsApp or even post to Twitter for example!
Better support for smaller screen phones
* Words which are longer than the screen will now be hyphenated so that they can be understood.
* Users can type in portrait orientation and then message will display in landscape for a one handed Blurb experience
Check out the new screenshots.
More new features will be available soon!
Hope you like it. Please rate it and thanks for reading. Download now and just tap your screen to enter your Blurb text!
The complex consists of two android devices (phones or tablets), linked via Bluetooth.
Install the “Deaf-Hearing Chat Device-D” application on the first device (which will be used by a deaf person).
Install the “Deaf-Hearing Chat Device-H” application on the second device (which will be used by a hearing person).
Run the applications on both devices and link the devices via Bluetooth.
A hearing person speaks into the phone, the application transforms the speech into a text message and sends it to the Device-D (used by a deaf person). You can also exchange text messages between the devices.
The complex is very convenient for regular communication in families with a deaf family member. Each message is followed by vibration, so you can always call a deaf person, address him / her.
The complex may also be used by a deaf person to communicate with hearing people in a shop, a hospital, a bank, etc. In this case, a deaf person should have both devices with him / her and pass a device with a pre-installed “Device-H” application to a hearing manager or consultant to start communication at any time.
The application for the device-H, called Deaf-Hearing Chat Device H, enables a hearing person to type text messages on a virtual keyboard or using voice input (the button “Voice Input” or the button "Say and Send" ). You need an Internet access for voice input. To send a message to device-D you should press the button “Send”. The messages, received from the device-D, are shown on the display.
supported languages for voice input: English (US, UK, Australia, Canada, India, New Zealand, South Africa ), French, German, Italian, Russian, Hebrew, Spanish (Spain, US, Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Puerto Rico, Uruguay, Venezuela), Japanese, Portuguese (Brazilian), Czech, Turkish, Dutch, Mandarin Chinese (Traditional Taiwan, Simplified China, Simplified Hong Kong), Korean, Indonesian, Malaysian and some others.
There is only one true luxury, and that is the luxury of human relations ( Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, writer and aviator).
Please purchase this application only after testing the free trial version, so that you know exactly what you pay for. "Deaf - Hearing chat."H"-trial. The trial version contains 15 messages.
Buying applications for the complex you’re contributing to rehabilitation of the deaf and helping them to adapt to the modern world of hearing people.
Download to first device app Deaf-Hearing Chat Device-D, use it for deaf person.
Download to second device app Deaf-Hearing Chat Device-H, use it for hearing person.
Connect these devices via bluetooth.
Communicate anytime, anywhere, now there are no more borders…
The application for the device-D, called Deaf-Hearing Chat Device D, enables a deaf person to type text messages on a virtual keyboard and to send them to the device-H (the button “Send”). Each sent message can be duplicated by the synthetic speech (the button “Speak and Send”). For the synthetic speech a speech synthesis module should be installed on the device (usually it’s installed; if it’s not it can be downloaded from Google Play, e.g. SVOX classic TTS or Pico TTS). The messages, received from the device-H, are shown on the display.
*** This is trial version of the "Deaf-Hearing chat. Device-D" application. You can send up to 15 messages.***
